  60. 2020 Sunday: For the first time in 45 years, NASA and SpaceX conduct a successful water landing as the Dragon X crew capsule returns two American astronauts- Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley- to Earth after two months on the International Space Station.  No longer does the United States need to pay Vladimir Putin’s Russia $85 million a pop to send American astronauts into space which once again proves to the world that Donald Trump is not a Russian stooge. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 17,852,451 confirmed cases, UP 257,910 cases, 679,794 confirmed deaths, UP 355, and 10,598,327 confirmed recoveries, UP 265,161.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 4,740,401 confirmed cases, UP 54,187, 157,113 confirmed deaths, UP 743, and 2,304,851 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,623.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?

  63. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Rep. Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 311,417 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 92,661 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $3.032.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Canada: $4.739 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,595,425,431071 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 132 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation along the southern border and Day No. 38 since her one- and only- LOL (as she always does)- visit to the slowest sector in the entire region.  Every day, approximately 5,000-10,000 illegal aliens are crossing into the United States, the advance guard of an international occupation force.  As they belittle and vilify white people using the same tactics that fat toad, Hugo Chavez, employed in Venezuela to transform his country from the most prosperous nation in Latin America to the absolute worst one in less than a decade.  What Hugo did is what the Nazis did before him and that is to single out one group, isolate it, make them highly unpopular, destroy them, and appropriate everything they own.  We must resist and the frigging Republicans must wake the f**k up.
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Even though a federal judge ordered an end to the DACA program, The USCIS- the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is acting as though the judge’s ruling means nothing.  IF President Trump had told a judge to buzz off, he would be impeached yet again, yet that senile fool Joe Biden will get away with everything until his use to his handlers ends.  Ah, well, One America News presents the current numbers of the Biden Border Debacle as follows: first, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $509,880,896.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for all the illegal aliens: $233,934,602,240.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,397,642.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens estimated to be in the country as you read this: 36,397,646.  We have said since the blog’s inception that back in 2009, the numbers were around 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million and this is not good, not good at all.  We must round them up, imprison them in Joe Arpaio-style tent prisons in the desert making them work, then load them onto all available transports and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.
  72. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- We learned today that the Chi-Coms are openly boasting that the Biden regime could not stop them from launching an amphibious and airborne invasion of Taiwan.  The U.S. Navy has been drawing ire over its emphasis on WOKE POLITICS rather than preparing for warfighting.  (Note- we have said this before and will say it again: the Chi-Coms although most likely ultimately victorious in invading Taiwan will suffer losses the likes of which, they cannot comprehend.  Look what the badly outnumbered U.S. Marines did to the Imperial Japanese when the latter invaded Wake Island shortly after Pearl Harbor.  The Taiwanese people are FREE people, and the Chi-Coms are communists, and the FREE people will fight to the bitter end.  We expect the Chi-Coms could easily lose 2-5 million people in the invasion, in the surrounding waters, and in the air.  Sure, a drop in the bucket for them but the global embarrassment would be humiliating to the country that wants to rule both the world and the near Solar System.  What?  Are they planning on building gulags on the moon and Mars?).
  73. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– (Former) Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing should be yanked from that country due to them letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu across the world just as they also covered it up to the best of their abilities.  A new report compiled by the GOP proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Xi Jinping’s namesake virus was allowed to leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says there’s NO WAY that Joe Biden will go after Beijing for the crimes they’ve committed.   Meanwhile, a new poll from Rasmussen says that a majority of (brain dead) Dems want mask mandates reinstituted.’  What a swarm of ants.  One of the ants- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says HE won’t be reinstituting mask mandates.  The dog dingus is trying to get people to return to the Big Apple.
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Biden regime is thrashing around like U.S. Olympian Raven Saunders when she was twerking on the sidelines at the Tokyo Olympic Games this past weekend: since the Centers for Disease Control cannot stop the eviction moratorium, mouthpieces are urging sympathetic states to continue the moratorium.  (Note- look- furloughed and/or unemployed workers were getting an extra $300 per week or $1,200 per month.  WTF weren’t they paying their rent?  Landlords have bills, too, for Christ’s Sake!)  Meanwhile, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st CD, says that the GOP is going to have to develop its own COVID-19 protocols.  Next, fully vaccinated Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is being treated for a mild case of the Chi-Vi.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, Governor John Bel Edwards, DS-LA, is ordering a new round of INDOOR mask mandates.  Oh, boy.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich, R-AZ, says that the Democrats and far-left rabble rousers have been abusing the elections systems for years, if not decades.   Meanwhile, nearly 60 House Republicans ask a judge to toss the Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Georgia over its new voting laws onto the scrap heap of history.  It is a bogus lawsuit filed by a fraudulent Department of Justice.
  76. 2021 Monday K: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney said the recent order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland directed to the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to Congress for yet another ‘shit show’ in the House is both ‘harassment and outrageous.’  Meanwhile, Eli Lake says there’s still time for Joe Biden to ditch the crackpot idea of returning to the Iran nuclear deal talks.  We hope Joe listens, but we know he won’t. 
  77. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che was forced to scrub his social media accounts after making hateful jokes about gymnast Simone Biles.  Had he made them about a conservative, everything would be fine, but he made them about America’s favorite gymnast and here is what the bozo said: “Larry Nasser [sic] understands Simone Biles better than anyone.  He, too, had to quit doing what he loved at the pinnacle of his career because of mounting pressures.”  Elsewhere, ‘Cho-Mo’ Senator Bob Menendez, DS-NJ, and 10 European counterparts are openly condemning Joe Biden’s Nord Stream 2 ‘deal’ with Vladimir Putin. 
  78. 2021 Monday N: Political News III– Okay, here is some of what is included in the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’- $66 billion for railways, $658 billion to expand broadband internet access, $55 billion on clean water projects like getting rid of lead pipes, and $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging stations.  Here is more of what is in the bill: $2.5 billion on welcome centers for migrants (we suggest minefields), $1 billion for the commission being chaired by Senator Joe Manchin’s wife (nothing like spreading a billion dollars around to buy votes), and money being doled out to various groups will be doled out by RACE and ‘gender identity’ will be recognized as a protected class- what does this have to do with frigging infrastructure?
  79. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– Over the weekend in Chicago, a long-time Democrat-controlled hellhole, 50 people were shot and five were killed.  Just another weekend in the Windy City but the body count was less than normal.
  80. 2022 Tuesday: Much talk about communist China lighting up Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi should she fly into Taiwan which we find absolutely humorous.  Shoot her down, no one would miss her.  On the serious side, IF the Chi-Coms intend to invade Taiwan- the legitimate China, the REAL China, the rightful owner of the mainland- the Chi-Coms must cross almost 100 miles of open water, dangerous water, perilous water.  Adolf Hitler was stymied by the 20 miles of the English Channel in 1940 and therefore never invaded Great Britain.  Do the Chi-Coms possess the balls to invade Taiwan?  The best way to thwart an invasion fleet is to launch drone swarms in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps in the millions.  Each drone would carry explosives and would swamp the fleet.  They would slash through the bridge windows, down the smokestack funnels and into the engine rooms, into the barrels of the deck guns, into the engines of jet aircraft waiting to launch, while underseas drones would dump mines all around the Chi-Com navy’s vessels.  The devastation would be tremendous, vast numbers of ships, men and materiel sent to the bottom in an instant.  Of course, undeclared nuclear power Taiwan could drop a BIG ONE smack dab in the midst of the invasion fleet.  Problem solved in a second.  It will be interesting to see…Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

Trump holds a “Salute to America” celebration with U.S. military personnel, tanks on the Washington Mall so people can view military equipment for which their tax dollars pay as well as various military aircraft doing flyovers.  It was awesome to witness although the Democrats were weeping and wailing over the fact that ‘Trump used the military to promote an authoritarian agenda.’  [xi]

[xxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,483,147,227,019 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS with $215 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  69. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 103 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her ninth day since her first and last visit to the vicinity of the border.   The catastrophe continues by the day.  Here are the numbers as reported by One America News[xxiii] regarding this unnecessary disaster: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens suckling at the teats of the American taxpayers: $575,203,072.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the massive amount of parasitical invaders: $202,219,094,016.  Imagine what good that money could do for the American people?  Moving on, (3) Numbers of Illegals who have crossed into the United States since January 21: 2,072,583.  Finally, (4) Total Numbers of Illegal Aliens estimated to be in the U.S.: 36,072,584.  Folks, this last number is an extreme conservative number.  We at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics estimated the numbers back when our blog began in 2009 as then being 35-50 million whereas now, we believe there are between 75-100 million illegals roaming about the country.  (Note- we would encourage everyone to watch the original “Red Dawn” movie starring Patrick Swayze.  You will see something utterly amazing in that movie when Powers Boothe tells the Wolverines how the invasion of the United States began).
  70. 2022 Monday: Happy Fourth of July, Independence Day, the ONLY Independence Day in the United States.  Stick around to see if anything is going on today, like a Chi-Com first strike on Washington, D.C.  Everyone knows old Joe is down in the basement spanking the wank, you know, ‘pulling a Toobin.’  Senile old coots like that sort of thing…

[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson ever know about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!”  We cannot judge people of the past by those of today.  We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening enjoyment.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham.  We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point.  It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.

[viii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys and the Plastic Ono Band.

[ix] When we do the music of Nirvana, we will be doing the music of Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Hole, and Smashing Pumpkins.  Stick around as that is going to be gloriously fun.

[x] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.  When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented. 

[xi] To which, we say, “F**K the Democrats, stop the crying, shut your mouths, you insolent unpatriotic POS.

90. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 31, 2021

70. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico. The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force? We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country. Mow them down!

  34. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India.  The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time.  The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people.  Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs?  Living room for their people?  Funny how history tends to repeat itself…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Waysted returned on April 30, 2008, with the album, “The Harsh Reality.”  We have the great Pete Way on bass and vocals, Finn Moore on vocals, Chris George (guitars), and Paul Haslin handle the percussion duties.  Fans of both Waysted and Pete Way love this album, seeing it as among the best albums the Waysted boys have ever recorded.  We tend to agree and recommend that everyone rush out and give this album a good listen, it’s that good and worth every penny anyone wants for it.  Some things you cannot fake and the intensity and the vigor encapsulated on this album will make anyone lifelong fans of the rockers that roared out of the 1960s and 1970s and will cause them to toss the modern music into the crapper.  Search for it- you’ll love it but folks- look to eBay or somewhere else because Amazon.com wants nearly a grand- $1,000- for this album and friends, NO album is worth that kind of money unless it’s a massive collection of Faces bootleg shows.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 31, 2021

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

[ii] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[vi] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[vii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[viii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ix] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[x] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day when we do.
